Family Advisory Council

Hearing from our patients and families is so important. It guides our work and helps us improve. It is ultimately how we achieve our mission to help every child live the healthiest and most fulfilling life possible.

What does the Family Advisory Council do?

This council is a group of parents and caregivers from our community who provide feedback on proposed policy, program and organizational changes that affect families at Seattle Children's. Advisors also bring family concerns to the attention of hospital leadership to identify and work on specific projects that support families.

Members of the council have a wide variety of healthcare experiences and represent the diverse families served by our organization. They serve for one or two terms of two years each. Council meetings last for two hours each month from September through June.
